Made for my husband and he couldn't stop eating it! He loves spicy stuff. I took it easy on the cayenne pepper for the first time, but he said it wasn't very hot so next time I'm going to really lay it on for him, and see if I can make him sweat. :) Thanks for posting!

Yummy stuff! I omitted the cayenne, cause, yes, I'm a wimp when it comes to spicy! My DH and I really enjoyed it! Thanks Kitz!
